Ö TILL Ö is a unique race in a unique environment. Teams of two race together from island to island. The teams swim between the islands and run on them. The total distance is 75 kilometres of which 10 km are swimming and 65 km are running. The race is ranked as one of the toughest endurance races in the world by various media.
In the end of 2013, Pawel constantly annoyed Alex by asking whether he would like to participate with him in this special competition. Although Alex always rejected his kind offer, Pawel finally bought a lottery ticket for the two of them - one of several ways to participate in ÖTILLÖ. Now, Alex gave up and slowly acquired the taste of this race.
In the beginning of 2014, shortly before ticket selection, Pawel and Alex also prepared an application by merits and - Eureka! - were chosen as one of 120 participating teams.
